  • In the SAP Crystal Reports Designer, records from an Alert are displayed:


  • Is there an API in the Crystal reports SDK for VS .NET that will do this?

  • There is no specific API
  • The following code will display the record(s) by getting the formula for the Alert and setting it as the ViewTimeSelectionFormula of the viewer


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument rpt = new CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument();
        rpt.Load(Request.PhysicalApplicationPath + "Crystalreport.rpt");
        ISCDReportClientDocument rcd = rpt.ReportClientDocument;
        Alerts alerts;
        Alert alert;
        alerts = rcd.ReportSource.GetTriggeredAlerts(new RequestContext());
        alert = alerts[0];
        string alertcondition = alert.ConditionFilter.FreeEditingText.ToString();
        CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = rcd.ReportSource;
        CrystalReportViewer1.ViewTimeSelectionFormula = alertcondition;
